Title:

Management Practices for Increasing Organic C and N Storage in Soil in Cropping Systems in the Canadian Prairies

Speaker:

Dr. Sukhdev Malhi

Dr. Malhi has more than 40 years of experience in field research on soil, crop and nutrient management for cereals and other crops under direct seeding, and for perennial forage crops. He is an Adjunct Professor at the University of Alberta, University of Saskatchewan, and Agricultural and Forestry University, Yangling, China. He has authored more than 294 (!) refereed scientific papers to date and will share his knowledge with you!

Description:

Soils in the Canadian Prairies have lost a substantial amount of their original organic carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) reserves in the last 100 or more years, mainly due to tilled summer fallow. Currently, many soils in the Canadian Prairies represent a potential sink for atmospheric CO2. Dr. Malhi will present best management practices that allow improving soil quality.
